The new movie, Persecuted, hasn't yet made it to my neck of the woods, but I've been reading the book in anticipation of its arrival to a big screen near me. When I first heard about the book, I was excited. A political thriller? From a Christian perspective? Definitely count me in. I enjoy reading -- a lot. I always have. I especially enjoy reading books that align with my faith. And books like this one that once I start I can't put down? Those are few and far between.
What I found most intriguing about the book is that YES, this CAN happen to me. And to you. Not only CAN it happen, but it DOES happen. All over the world and right here in America, the very tenets of our faith are questioned and misrepresented. Political tides have changed. As Christians, we need to be cautiously aware and diligently prayerful as we share the love of JESUS -- and share we must. There is no time for silence. Persecuted is a great reminder of why I teach a biblical worldview to my children and why it is imperative that they hide GOD's Word in their hearts.
About The Book:
The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When
The most popular evangelist of his day, John Luther, simply wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked to be at the center of a political controversy, but an ill wind has been blowing through the halls of Congress, and supporters of a new religious-equality bill see Luther's endorsement as critical. But when Luther refuses to lend his support, he unknowingly sets in motion an explosive plan bent on destroying his reputation and undermining everything for which he stands. His once-normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive left with only one dangerous option--putting everything he holds most dear at risk while he fights to expose the truth. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.
